    + Shouldn't the icons in the Start Center always be the TDF/LibreOffice official "Branding" icons

* How best to provide kendy with a list of needsDevEval (Jay)
 
    + presented the ~10 at ESC
    + query for all the NeedsDevEal them:
        + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/buglist.cgi?bug_status=UNCONFIRMED&bug_status=NEW&list_id=533105&query_format=advanced&status_whiteboard=needsDevEval%20needDevEval&status_whiteboard_type=anywordssubstr

        + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/buglist.cgi?bug_status=UNCONFIRMED&bug_status=NEW&list_id=533111&query_format=advanced&status_whiteboard=needsDevEval%20TopicUi&status_whiteboard_type=allwordssubstr
AI      + let's triage what's there, and then use the "needsDevEval topicUI" combination for the proposed UI Easy Hacks (Jay / Stuart)
 
    + https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/Bugzilla/Fields/Whiteboard/Advanced
    + https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/Bugzilla/Fields/Whiteboard
        + there is inconsistency between needDevEval, neeedsDevEval and NeedsDevEval
        + would be good if QA makes it consistent - querying is hard:
            + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/buglist.cgi?status_whiteboard=needsDevEval (26 bugs)
            + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/buglist.cgi?status_whiteboard=needDevEval (14 bugs)
            + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/buglist.cgi?status_whiteboard=NeedsDevEval (75 bugs)
AI      + poke QA guys to make this consistent (Stuart)
 
* Artwork for LibreOffice 5.0 call for proposals (Stuart/Kendy)
 
    + Added the 5.0 Branding artwork call for proposals (Stuart)
      https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Design/Whiteboards/5.0_Branding
        + it is a bit thin, so feel free to hack at it.
        + need some crafting on the Whiteboard as to scope of 5.0 branding proposals, e.g.
          + visual design (color scheme, icons)
          + StartCenter specifics (changes to layout--yes/no--)
          + placment or size of thumbnail views/template views
          etc.
    + already some responses to posts to Users and Design MLs
 
    + needed: splash, startcenter graphics, about
        + https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Marketing/Branding
        + https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Marketing/Branding#Color_Table
        + https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Visual_Elements
 
    + reached to some people we know (Heiko, Jay)
    + now to spread the word more
AI      + put it online (Kendy)
 
* Insert Chart (Heiko/Jay)

    + https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Z1IBeqKnscoODgFDNm81iDnwkzxce92sEsYuMggnTDQ/edit?usp=sharing
    + http://user-prompt.com/libreoffice-design-session-inserting-a-chart/
 
    + blog posted
    + discussion with Pedro - many issues solved
        + non-continuous charts request
    + much input from others too
    + concern about removing functionality - but acceptable if it is possible to tweak it a differen way / later

    + Continue with last friday's insert chart discussion as it hasnt been completed
    + List of possible future topics

    + Topic: Style guide - continued
      https://docs.google.com/document/d/1hSYOFoG6jnj2G0zWDbUYkrGZoj7YCSI9j3onkTZ65bU/edit
        + like, where we want to rely on other guidelines, and what we want to design / decide
          ourselves
 
 * UX advise bugs in bugzilla (Stuart) (340 bugs in ux-advice today)
 
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/buglist.cgi?bug_status=UNCONFIRMED&bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=NEEDINFO&component=ux-advise&list_id=527515&query_format=advanced&resolution=---
   
    + everyone please feel empowered to look at that + act: reject, implement, decide, or bring to
      the meeting or mailing list if controversial
    + please be kind when closing requests, usually people have spent quite some energy filing that
 
    + Jay will go through the ux-advise bugs he has added (Jay)
    + to decrease the backlog, we should take ~5 easy to decide bugs to every meeting, and deal with them (Stuart)
AI      + the next meeting, let's try it - select few that are easy to deal with (Stuart)
        + might be good to track it in a doc (Jay)
            + pad might be enough - let's start with this in the pad for now (Kendy)
        + and for grouping, we can use meta-bug (Stuart/Kendy)
AI      + will parse the list and generate entries to the Design Pad--tdf# and title--and when added include
          in a BZ Meta (but put it in UI component) (Stuart)
